Software Engineer (UK)

Etch via We Work Remotely

Jul 4th 2018

Headquarters: Canterbury, UK

We're looking for a Javascript Developer with 3+ years experience.
Since we set out in 2012, Etch has worked with dozens of Startups and Multinational companies to design and engineer Software. We establish long-term relationships with clients to help them improve and maintain their online services.
We're taking on more challenging projects and want to scale-up from a Trio to a Quartette. Plus we'll be able to arrange that table tennis doubles match, at last!
We only work on about six products a year, which allows us to give projects our full focus and build a stronger understanding of the problem we're solving.
Canterbury (near London) is our hometown, but we're a distributed team so you can work from anywhere. We arrange quarterly meet-ups to bring everyone together and hang out for a few days.
You'll be building web apps with React (our library of choice since 2015), and we maintain a few older projects that sit on Laravel and Rails.
You'll be using solid tools like Slack, Trello, Github, Heroku, Travis, Codacy, Snyk, to name just a handful.
You'll be involved in every step of a project — from the initial proposal, all the way through to post-launch support.

  • A solid understanding of modern JavaScript development.
  • Experience working with a fully remote team.

  • 20 days holiday a year (increasing with tenure).
  • A week off at Christmas.
  • Annual bonus.
Position: Software Engineer.
